StoryCorps Founder Dave Isay says it’s important to capture the stories of people who faced a “wall of silence” historically.



Award winning public radio producer David Isay launched StoryCorps in 2003. The oral history project has since collected nearly 50,000 interviews. 


On this week's WestSouthwest, StoryCorps Founder David Isay discusses oral history. And retired Western Michigan University Professor David Rozelle prepares for the World Transplant Games.
